“This ‘ethical fashion,’ this ‘sustainable fashion,’ that complies to what fashion really is, that is borne out of passion, skills, heritage, artistry, and bravery, is fashion. “ — Orsola De Castro
Alabama Chanin returned to New York Fashion Week this year with a private showing at the Bowery Hotel. This return inspired us to looks back on our history, from Natalie cutting up and sewing back together her first T-shirt in New York to Alabama Chanin’s present-day Family of Businesses. With entries dating back 12-plus years, our Journal posts act as stepping stones of that history. Explore those with us this week.
